Bryan Palmer’s OzPolitics – HE LIVES!!

Somewhere along the way Australia’s best site about Australian Politics with terrific historical archives and great fun quizzes went offline.

It saddens me that it slipped by me unnoticed and it seems it slipped the larger blogosphere’s notice as well.

I confess I have some self interest in seeing it restored.

I hope Bryan is well wherever he may be.  I vaguely recall blogging absences for medical reasons.  I hope it is not as I fear and that the great man has passed away.  I do not know where Bryan Palmer was located but I have found a death notice, using the Ryerson Index for a Bryan Palmer aged 64 from Brisbane listed in the Courier Mail from April.

If this is he, I offer my empathy, sympathy and condolences to his family and friends and wish to let them know I grieve with them.

Some good soul is attempting to continue Bryan Palmer’s good works.

For that I thank you.

Update: Bryan is alive and well.  Currently working for the government/public service.  See comment below

  1. Oh no! I have been wondering why Bryan Palmer’s teriffic site was offline but I never considered that option. That’s awful.

    Thanks for the post.

    Not dead – just retired from blogging (actually I was getting too busy at work).
